WFC Embraces Equity and Inclusion
We at World Fantasy Convention 2020 are sensitive to the challenges ethnic minorities face in today’s environment. WFC2020 abhors the inequalities African Americans are confronted with in policing and other aspects of society, and we stand with them. Equity and inclusion are at the heart of our vision of diversity for our Virtual World Fantasy Convention 2020. We are committed to ensuring that all minorities are given equal opportunities to participate in all aspects of the online convention. We recognize that diversity in literature and art enriches the fantasy and horror genres, and we are here to embrace it.
Sponsored Memberships for
People of Color
At World Fantasy Convention 2020 it is our hope that our virtual convention will be attended by a diverse membership, many of whom are using their craft to create literature and art that not only entertain but introduce fantasy enthusiasts to a wide range of cultures. Many WFC members feel the same and are taking steps toward encouraging people of color to participate in this year’s virtual convention. As a result, we’ve received several offers to sponsor the memberships for people of color to participate in the Virtual World Fantasy Convention. To date we have sponsored twenty-eight people of color to participate in this year's Virtual World Fantasy Convention!
